Lower School (Key Stage 3)
Biology Online


Cambridge Lower School’s biology lessons are designed to inform and excite young students. Our MA/PhD qualified subject specialist teachers help students develop a genuine interest in biology. This interest enables them to understand and explore different forms of life with a high level of curiosity.

We believe that biology is one of the most important subjects for young students. As they learn about cells, plants, DNA, viruses, bacteria, cell membranes, and different forms and/or components of life, they understand how complex and fascinating life is. This fuels their interest in discovering and exploring more nuanced aspects of biology.

Our students often pursue medicine in their IGCSEs and A Levels. This decision can only be made when students have a strong foundation in biology. They must also possess a passion for the subject. At Cambridge Lower School, we help create this interest.

As students grapple with different biological concepts, they become well-informed individuals. Not only do our students secure top grades, but they also make informed decisions about their own health and important biological issues. By initiating the process of dialectic and critical thinking, we help students excel in biology and progress to more advanced learning stages with confidence, clarity, and a high level of knowledge.  


We offer a range of assessments during our live lessons. These include summative tests, worksheets, pop quizzes, group activities, and more. Using these assignments, our teachers assess each student’s skills and knowledge.


Homework will be given out every two weeks, usually in the form of researching key concepts, quizzes for recapitulation and subject-related fun, and completing of coursework.


Parents have 24 /7 access to all of their children’s coursework, grades and teacher feedback. Additionally, parents can arrange consultations with teachers at mutually convenient times.

Course Outline

Our curriculum is informed by the national curriculum to a significant degree. By making some changes, we’ve further strengthened the curriculum to help students develop a strong foundation in biology. Pupils are taught well-structured lessons that help them gain a deeper knowledge, develop new skills, and progress to more advanced learning stages with adroitness.

Key Topics Taught

  • The structure and function of living organisms (cells and organisation, nutrition and digestion, the skeletal and muscular systems, gas exchange systems, reproduction, and health)

  • Interactions and interdependencies (relationships in an ecosystem)

  • Interactions and interdependencies (relationships in an ecosystem)

  • Genetics and evolution (chromosomes, inheritance, DNA, genes)



No specialised equipment is required. Students may be requested to possess certain materials for class activities. These are generally easily available. We make it a point to inform parents if certain tools and materials are required beforehand.


About The Teacher

From Mrs. Perkins

I am Head of Biology at Cambridge Home School. I have a first class BSc in Biology and a Masters degree in Primate Conservation from Oxford University. I am also a qualified secondary school teacher with a PGCE.

Before becoming a teacher, I worked in a lot of animal environments such as a dairy farm and a Big Cat zoo. I also volunteered to go to a rainforest in Honduras, Central America to study the behaviour of black Howler monkeys.

I am passionate about Biology and love to share this with my students. There really is no better feeling than the satisfaction of watching young minds grow!
